Interaction design intern at Swift Creatives

The Opportunity

Us

We are Swift Creatives, a Scandinavian design and product innovation team dedicated to creating and crafting brand led, humanistic, physical and digital experiences with purpose. With studios in Aarhus, Beijing and London, we think, shape and make products that move brands forward. 

We cover all aspects of the design process – from insights, strategy and concepting through to product, interaction, UX/UI and experience design. We help our customers solve a range of design challenges, whether its creating products that generate revenue today or mapping out growth opportunities to ensure their competitiveness tomorrow.

In London we are building a new studio from the ground up for an interconnected digital and physical world, and we are on the lookout for some interns to join us in June 2018.

You

We're looking for interaction designers that can translate real user goals and brand values into outstanding responsive digital experiences. You’ll be working across websites and applications, both native and browser based, but we would also like you to be able to think beyond screens to help us create interconnected digital and physical experiences.

We want you to do the unexpected, be curious and inspire us. You should be willing to jump into unknown worlds and take creative risks. Stupid or daring ideas, mistakes, errors and brave failures are all a natural part of the creative process. But fail fast and don’t include it in the delivery.

We have a humorous, easygoing and high performance culture. Please contribute, have fun and don’t be an asshole.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK. A fluency in English is a prerequisite - other languages especially Danish, Mandarine or Korean are a bonus.

Duties

Concept generation - sketching, wire-framing and prototyping, along with helping map user journeys and define interaction principles

Coding experience (HTML, CSS and Javascript) would be a bonus but not essential.

What we offer

We let the best ideas win. We’re not a bunch of design prima donnas. We’re a team. We actively seek and provide constructive feedback and criticism in the search for the best idea.

Hands on work experience - not just taking coffee orders
